Until last week, 50 Cent had one of the ultimate American dream stories, as he overcame poverty to own the entertainment world. Never shy about his earnings, 50 Cent showed it off. This is the man who proclaimed “I Get Money,” back in 2007.
50 Cent is used to making power moves and bullying the rap game. He established deals with Interscope Records, Reebok, and many others. In the meantime, 50 Cent battled Ja Rule, Fat Joe, Jadakiss, and Nas, but he met his match with Rick Ross, who actually topped Fif.
In 2009, 50 Cent leaked a sextape of Levonia Leviston, Rick Ross’ baby mama, with her boyfriend. Embarrassed by the situation, Lavonia Leviston filed a lawsuit over the sextape for $5 million and 50 Cent responded by filing for bankruptcy and is now claiming to be broke, saying he only has $4.4 million. This week, 50 Cent is in court and he failed to give evidence of having no money and his deals were brought up and he is said to have signed over $250 million in deals over the past ten years.
